Hey, look at this gal on Fell near Divis – she doesn’t care about a little rain:
Is cycling ever going to be “comfortable?”
So when/how/why did “comfort” become SFGov’s planning lodestar?
The Problem with Gary Bauer of Bauer Limousine Using the Term “Intelligent Transportation” for His Buses: He’s Not All That SmartMonday, August 4th, 2014

Rich White Lady from the Marina Times, Susan Dyer Reynolds, Calls for Bicycle Commuter Licensing and InsuranceFriday, July 6th, 2012
You know, because of the Chris Bucchere thing.
Here it is, or a part of it, anyway:
“With huge numbers of people biking to work on a daily basis, it may be time to look into licensing commuter bicyclists so they must take the same DMV tests motorcyclists and motorists take to ensure that they know the laws. It also seems that offenders should face some of the same punishments motorcyclists and motorists face, like points against their license. And if they’re going to be commuters, thus increasing the chances of accidents on city streets, perhaps they should also have to carry insurance. I’m not advocating these measures for the person who bikes through Golden Gate Park recreationally, one or two Sundays a month; but for everyday commuters, I think it makes sense.”
Oh, hold on, this post will need a photo.
Type Marina District into the Google, and this is what you’ll get:
Hair lightened and teeth whitened – I’ll have to try that one of these days.
Now, where was I? Oh yes, uh, I seriously kind of don’t think you can require licensing and insurance for people who go to work on a bike and not for the people who go about solely in Golden Gate Park.
And points at the DMV, well, that would seem to penalize those with driver licenses more than those without, capiche?
And Davis, CA? Is that our lodestar now, law enforcement-wise, rich white Marina Lady?
I drink your milkshake, Susan Dyer Reynolds!
I drink it up!
